Chill time never tasted so good! – the Epiphany Café story…

Two Hamilton engineers hit a sweet spot in the culinary market when they perfected a recipe for light and
fresh donuts. It led to the founding of their Epiphany Café brand, named for their moment of revelation, and
dedicated to delicious donuts and other treats. The company has growing strings of cafes and kiosks in the
Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Auckland regions; now it’s preparing to take its edibles down-country to Wellington
and the South Island!
So, what’s the secret to making a perfect donut?

Zenie Lorenzo Low - ZLL Productions Limited

It was 1991 when Zenie thought about starting a business in New Zealand to produce shows featuring Filipino celebrities. She was about to go back home to Auckland with her husband and their two children after her husband’s two and half years posting in Nairobi, Kenya had come to an end. It was a sort of middle age crisis, whether to find employment or to start a business in a field that no-one in the Filipino community had done before.

Team Kutsero NZPBC – a team to beat at this year’s Lingaw Duwa

Sunshine, glorious sunshine! What a wet winter we had here in Auckland and now it seems like spring is here. Mornings are still chilly but it won’t be long now for the t-shirt, shorts and jandal weather, I can’t wait. The team at Lingaw Duwa are doing the sporting event again on Saturday 30th September and NZPBC is joining. This Filipino sporting event aims to promote Philippine traditional and indigenous games to strengthen the bond among various Filipino groups and introduce these games to other cultures.
